Everyone has a lot to say about Alice Franklin, and it’s stopped mattering whether it’s true. The rumors started at a party when Alice supposedly had sex with two guys in one night. When school starts everyone almost forgets about Alice until one of those guys, super-popular Brandon, dies in a car wreck that was allegedly all Alice’s fault. Now the only friend she has is a boy who may be the only other person who knows the truth, but is too afraid to admit it. Told from the perspectives of popular girl Elaine, football star Josh, former outcast Kelsie, and shy genius Kurt, we see how everyone has a motive to bring – and keep – Alice down.

My Thoughts:

Everyone think they know about Alice but no truly knows her or where the rumors came from.

Wow this book is better then what I thought it would be. Normally I've been getting away from the YA type of books but this book sounded so interesting and that cover was what really drawn me in. What I love about this cover is that it has a lot to do with the book.

This is a story about betrayal, guilt, and Alice trying to get past everything. It was interesting getting more then one point of view. At first I thought that this book was going to be of Alice point of view from what it sounded like in the description but its more of the thoughts of those around her. Every character was unique there were a few choice characters that I hated as the story progressed. Then there was Alice, even if it was everyone else's point of view you can see her character develop. First shes this fun girl who people see as sleazy but shes a great girl, then slowly her character starts to hide as the rumors progress. Actuly I won't say more, because I don't want to spoil the book for you readers.

This is defiantly one of those books you got to bump to the top of your To Read Lists. Trust me you wont regret it. Highly Recommend!!! 5 of 5 stars!
